The pamphlet focuses on how the freedom of slaves would be detrimental to society. John H. Van Evrie maintains his anti-abolitionist opinion citing examples of the West India Islands and its consequences of emancipation. Examples of the commerce, wealth, and businesses of Haiti, Jamaica, and other islands are given with charts that show how it declined when slaves were emancipated. The author maintains that one group of people should be oppressed to benefit the majority of another.

This is an abolitionist pamphlet and illustrates that the slavery institution is in danger of failing for the benefit of the country. It shows how the public is joining the anti-slavery sentiment and that the government is in favor of abolition and the example given is New Mexico and California not becoming slave states. The pamphlet focuses on the Fugitive Slave Law and the repeal of the Act of Assembly of 1847 and the effects on Pennsylvania.
